*APPLY NOW: Applications Due April 19, 2013
[The Workshop Leader program] has enabled me to focus sustained time and attention on my teaching...I have already seen my own teaching improve, as I was able to apply some of what we read and talked about in my current course.
- Workshop Leader, Communication Studies
I met [NTAC Workshop Leaders] from other disciplines who wanted to learn more about teaching. It was great to meet so many people who took teaching seriously who wanted to improve their teaching methods.

The NTAC Workshop Leader program is an excellent professional development opportunity for NU graduate students to develop their presentation skills and discuss teaching and learning issues with graduate students across disciplines. The summer training combines discussion of learning theory with reflections on best practices in teaching. Participation in the summer training sessions as well as leading workshops in September give graduate students multiple opportunities to receive feedback and reflect on their teaching practice. Former Workshop Leaders often continue to participate in more competitive and long-term programs at the Searle Center such as the Teaching Certificate Program or as a Graduate Teaching Fellow.
